Rebecca Cohen

Eller MBA Ambassador

Phoenix Evening MBA

My name is Rebecca Cohen and I am a current student in the Phoenix Evening MBA program - go class of '21! I am a Phoenix native and absolutely love the Valley of the Sun. It is so exciting to be a part of such a rapidly growing community and I feel so lucky to be able to take part in a UA program in my own backyard. I come from a long line of Wild Cats and am a proud UA representative. 

For my undergraduate studies, I attended the College of Charleston in Charleston, SC where I studied Art History and French with the intention of working in a museum or gallery setting after graduation. After graduating, though, I decided to pursue a career in sales, as it felt like a much better fit for my skill set. I am definitely a people person. I currently work for Amazon as a Sales Executive. 

I wanted to attend a graduate school program to expand my formal business education and to have the opportunity to widen my network in the Arizona business community. It was also important that I had the opportunity to continue working throughout my education. The UA Evening MBA program was a perfect fit for me and I have immensely enjoyed the cohort experience. The Eller experience offers so many opportunities for hands-on learning and professional growth. But beyond that, it offers the opportunity to interact with an incredibly intelligent group of people and to form strong relationships based on mutual interests and stimulating conversations. The bonds that I have formed with the members of my cohort have made the experience even more worth-while and I am so grateful for the ways in which they all have bettered my life and expanded my worldview.  

I currently serve as the Phoenix Cohort Class of 2021 President and cannot wait to continue to grow within the program. I have a passion for the UA (Bear Down!) and love being able to help contribute to the community.  

Please feel free to send me an email and ask me about the Eller MBA program, balancing the Evening program with life and work, or any other questions that you may have! I am happy to help in any way!
